Feature request - PPPoE time between redial

Hello,

I'm using a RB2011 and I've noticed the automatic PPPoE redial is quite aggressive in attempting to re-establish a connection.

In my case, it will attempt to dial about 5 times before it's successful. I'm guessing the PPPoE modem I'm using just can't keep up, and I'm wondering if the Mikrotik hammering out broadcast packets is causing it to die (since I'm having a reliability issue between the two devices)

It would be nice if you could add a redial interval - rather like the Windows PPPoE client has.

Thanks
Henry

This is a nice feature. Also because during the dialing the pppoe add an IP in the address list and can disturb the routes for few seconds.
